Pies Galore

It's been a pielicious month in the Smalltown household.

First, there were chicken pot pies, creatively using up various leftovers.
I knew I would have a use for the little aluminum pans someday!
Frank made 2 batches of dough; I put together the filling.
We ended up with 8 little pies.

With a beautiful golden glow from the egg wash.

There was enough dough left for a small pie.
Frank chose apple cranberry, and baked it in my grandmother's little pan.
(I once had a bigger pan of hers but broke it while serving a cheesecake.
I did save the cheesecake.)

Most recently we had a blueberry pie for the Handy Husband's birthday.
That is made in one of my classic Watkins pie pans.

That white lump in the bowl in the foreground? I had a Close Encounter with the whipped cream.

Pushing Daisies lives in your kitchen!!! i'm loving it!!
I actually was watching that tonight and thought of you....i think the boys need t-shirts from the Pie Hole that say something like "i am the pie maker"!!

i'm now going to come up with a way to get one of those pot pies over may be tricky, but, if you seal the box right.....

OK dangit. You've been reading my blog long enough to know what comes next.

Mmmmmm. Pie.

Does your town need a family-run bakery? It looks like you all could take the job!

Wasn't Pushing Daisies great? I'm with Jen - you could go into business!

Are you willing to share your pot pie recipe? Yours look so much more delicious than my turkey pot pie attempts.
